Racing season is fast approaching.
Even if you’re not in an area local to the races, there are events all Australia wide celebrating these events, and it’s expected you show up in your race day best for them.
Have you got your outfits ready?
For the latest fashion styles, check out our round-up here.
But the outfit is only half the battle. Racing season is all about accessorising, accessorising, accessorising.
Headwear - fascinators are out!
That’s right. We hate to break it to you. The classic lace-trimmed fascinators that have been dominating race day fashion for so long have finally fallen off the style radar.
Instead, this season is all about large hats, headbands and delicate crowns.
The boater is a classic race day style. The wide brim is elegant and classy while also practically saving you from the beating sun.
Racing season is all about taking daring risks, and this oversized bow does precisely that. It brings a quirky, innocent twist to an otherwise formal outfit.
This takes the pimped-out headband to a whole new level. It’s a modern and avant-garde twist on the typical flower crown and sure to turn heads.
This handmade headband gives the appearance of a delicate tiara without being in your face about it. Its tulle and beading gives it a subtle, beautiful appearance.
Show you’re the queen of the track with this white teardrop embellished crown. It's a very subtle piece but would sparkle in the sunshine.
Don't forget these accessories!
While your headpiece and dress may be the two most significant factors in your outfit, sometimes the best look is all in the details.
Racing season is all about showing your flair for fashion, and this unique shoulder bag is the perfect way to do just that. The wooden and faux-crocodile bag in baby pink is a kitschy-cool accessory.
It’s probably inevitable that you’ll need to wear a mask at some point during your day, so don’t let it ruin your outfit. This breathable silk mask is stylish and practical.
If you’ve been to the races before, you’ll know they’re held on grass, and they’re a long day. Stick your stilettos back in your wardrobe and opt for a comfy yet stylish pair of wedges instead.
This vegan leather baby blue bag is large enough to store your phone and wallet while not being unwieldy. The slouch clutch is very ‘in’ right now, so make sure to get your hands on this.
Large gaudy earrings are a thing of the past. This season’s statement jewellery is delicate items like this gold and pearl drop earring.
